$150 Million



GM is investing more than $150 million in Michigan manufacturing plants in Lansing, Flint, Lake Orion, Romulus and Brownstown Township to manufacture future crossover, pickup and Cruise AV production.


GM said its plan includes a more than $100 million investment in the Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant to produce the next-generation GMC Acadia. In addition, the automaker plans a $32 million investment at the Flint Assembly plan for future production of heavy-duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

It will undertake a $17 million investment in the Romulus, Michigan propulsion plant to enhance automation and increase capacity of GM’s 10-speed truck transmission, which is used in full-size pickups and other key products, including the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade.

An additional $750,000 will be invested at GM’s site in Brownstown Charter Township, Michigan, as well as a $3.5 million investment at Orion Assembly. Both investments are related to additional production of the Cruise AV test vehicle at Orion Assembly.

GM’s $2.2 billion investment in Factory ZERO, Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center for retooling and upgrades will position the facility to build EVs at scale. It represents the single largest investment in a plant in GM history. Once fully operational, the plant will create more than 2,200 good-paying U.S. manufacturing jobs. The investment is part of GM’s commitment to invest at least $3.5 billion in Michigan over the next 10 year announced at the beginning of the year by MEDC.
